Dr. Schotte said, “Owning a small business is an adventure. Since launching several years ago, our growth has been exponential and GROW has supported us at certain critical junctures. Through their micro-loan program, we were able to enter the Natural Products market by exhibiting at Expo West, North America’s premier Natural Products trade show. We were also able to expand our advertising presence in the U.S. and internationally and purchase the supplies necessary to increase production. GROW was the first funding organization to recognize our potential and enthusiastically support us. Their confidence in our company and their support has been very encouraging.”
